It's a beautiful hostel but absolutely freezing in winter. The guy at reception is also ice cold (haha pun intended). It's also very dead and unless you want a lot of alone time the other place a few blocks over is a fair bit busier (has a fire place too, nice and warm!) It has an amazing outdoor area and... More

After reading about this hostel online and seeing it's amazing pool bar setup I was beyond excited to stay. However I regret to say that my experience was not the best. Whilst the set up has an awesome vibe, the rude staff working made my experience far from pleasant. Upon trying to pay with card I was told there was... More

I have to say f&f is a place to stay. Nice staff, clean dorms just bit small but for couple days stay is perfect. I stayed there two nights and after each day of exploring had few drinks with other backpackers. If you hungry they have some food for you. It's a 10-15 minute walk from bus station. Supermarket is... More

I've been there with girlfriend in low season and I am sure that we were in a different atmosphere. Calm, just some people talking, cooking and spending the time. In the summer, for sure its a place to party, with music, swimming pool and drinks. We really like: information, staff is really nice, good, kitchen is enough. Not so far... More

You have a pool a bar, clean kitchen and great bedrooms. It's 2 min to the beach as well. Could not have foud a better... More

Writing a review on here as F&F hostel cancelled my booking on hostelworld meaning that I couldn't leave an honest review on there. All the reviews on hostelworld are blatantly fixed. The pool and bar area are the best thing about this hostel - everything else is in total disrepair. A hostel that size with only one bathroom with a... More

We are travelling around South America as a late twenties/early thirties couple and we stayed in F&F hostel in an 8 bed dorm. We arrived at F&F to discover that despite having been charged a deposit, our reservation had not been made and due to it being high season they only had spare beds in an 8 bed dorm which... More

The hostel has all basic facilities and is clean, but is very compact, overpriced and sports a semi-pretentious atmosphere. I can't understand how anyone can rate the staff positively. We were greeted with nothing but rudeness, told at 7:30am after a long overnight bus journey when making our own coffee, that 'this was a hostel and you can't just use... More

We thought that FF was an awesome place to hang out and relax for a few days. They're about a 15min walk from town but have free bikes to use if you want to get around. The rooms were clean and the staff were very friendly.
